Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1087-01
Posted Jun 10, 2015
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1087-01 - KVM is a full virtualization solution for Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. The qemu-kvm package provides the user-space component for running virtual machines using KVM. A flaw was found in the way QEMU's AMD PCnet Ethernet emulation handled multi-TMD packets with a length above 4096 bytes. A privileged guest user in a guest with an AMD PCNet ethernet card enabled could potentially use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the hosting QEMU process.

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. The qemu-kvm package provides the
user-space component for running virtual machines using KVM.

A flaw was found in the way QEMU's AMD PCnet Ethernet emulation handled
multi-TMD packets with a length above 4096 bytes. A privileged guest user
in a guest with an AMD PCNet ethernet card enabled could potentially use
this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the
hosting QEMU process. (CVE-2015-3209)

Red Hat would like to thank Matt Tait of Google's Project Zero security
team for reporting this issue.

All qemu-kvm users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this
update, shut down all running virtual machines. Once all virtual machines
have shut down, start them again for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
